George opened an Immortals Hotline on Friday's show. One caller, claiming to have been born in 1499, said he was on the run from a secret group of European immortal hunters. He admitted that while he isn't affected by sickness or disease, he can be fatally wounded.
Another caller identifying himself as Usul told George his race has "no sense of time and space" and walks among us in great numbers disguised as ordinary human beings. Usul believes he saw his birth mother pregnant with the physical form he now inhabits.
Later in the show, a caller said he had been shot in the chest and pronounced dead by paramedics. Much to everyone's surprise, however, he got up as if nothing had happened to him. He claims to have photographic proof of the incident.
A caller to the Wild Card Line believes he saw an Old Hag in Jacksonville, FL. According to him, the Hag knocked on the door of his truck while he was sleeping and urged him to let her in. After he refused, she walked off and disappeared into the darkness. He told a friend about the encounter and was visited the next night by the Hag who angrily asked him, "Why did you tell?"
During the first half-hour of Friday's show, inventor and author, Robert Barrows, discussed new technology for tombstones. He is currently in the process of filing a patent application for video tombstones. These modified cemetery markers would be remote controlled with the video screen behind a Plexiglas shield. Barrows estimates the cost to be 20-30% more than the regular cost of the tombstone, and could be available very soon.
